We planned our wedding in about 5 months. I don't know what we would have done without Glow. There were so many logistics that I would have never thought about. Everything I was worried about, they had a solution for. Kristi helped us with our vendors. Every vendor she recommended was amazing. She helped coordinate with them so that we didn't have to worry about it, and it seriously reduced my stress levels to no longer have to receive 15 wedding e-mails a day from different vendors. She kept us organized and reminded us about payment due dates.

Sonum and Katie were with us on the day of as our coordinators. They did such a great job, everything went so smoothly, and I wasn't stressed for 1 second on our wedding day. It rained all day on our wedding day, so we had to switch to plan B of moving everything inside. I thought everything turned out perfect despite having to relocate, and we never would have pulled it off without Sonum and Katie.

GLOW saved our wedding. We had ended a contract with a previous planner who had decided to change professions. The planners at GLOW helped us get everything back on track to create our perfect wedding. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a helpful, organized, and innovative team of wedding professionals.

Life Savers! When our wedding planner quit 4 months before our wedding, our friend introduced us to Kristi. She was already booked for another wedding but put together a day of team with Katie in the lead.
Kristi and Katie sent us a list of questions the next day and within 24 hours were completely up to speed and had found all the holes our first planner had missed over the previous 10 months!
On the day-of I was completely carefree! Katie handled everything that came up (and things always come up) and left my husband and I to enjoy our party!
I'm so glad we ended up with Kristi and Katie from GLOW - I can't recommend them enough!

Hiring Glow as our wedding coordinator was easily the best investment we made. Though we only booked the day-of package, Kristi went above and beyond a month earlier to ensure we have all our plans in place. Her planning document was tremendously helpful in organizing our thoughts about process and logistics, and she always asked great questions that reminded us what we still need to work out. On the day of the wedding, she ensured that everything went smoothly and troubleshooted as needed. I have not heard of one glitch during our wedding day, and that is all due to her and her assistant's coordination. She confirmed all our vendors throughout the day, and ensured our wedding shuttles were running on time. It was so nice to leave the venue at the end of the night knowing everything was already perfectly packed and organized. I would recommended Glow in a heartbeat.

What more can I say but GLOW is AMAZING! I hired Kristi as my day-of coordinator for my October 22nd wedding in DC and can honestly say that working with her and her team was the best planning decision I made. I had a relatively long engagement (1.5 years) and thought I was really on top of everything (oh, i have lots of time, I said!) Well, about 1.5 months out after our walk-through I started to panic about all the things left to do (chasing rsvps, doing seating charts, picking music, finalizing decorations, logistics, etc.). Kristi was incredibly helpful the whole time - recommending vendors (who I used and were great!), keeping me on track with her planning docs, and being available for calls as needed. I'm a bit of a control freak and the thought of relinquishing control on the wedding day was frightening for me. Never once did I feel like Kristi wasn't on top of things, she remembered everything I wanted and worked to make it just right (even having a last minute conference call the Thursday before to calm my nerves when I found out we had a last minute contact change at the venue). Even though I had a small wedding party and 120 guests there were still a lot of logistics - two venues, transportation in between, separate car for me and my husband, hotels spread all over the city - but she handled it like a pro. She even brought in an assistant to help the day of but didn't charge me extra, she just wanted it to run smoothly and did what needed to be done.

The best part for me was her demeanor. She's extremely calm and professional which is exactly what you need the day of. Nothing seemed to phase her - If anything went wrong behind the scenes, I never knew it! Throughout the reception she would appear and give me some direction or ask a discrete question but I never felt like she was imposing, just keeping a watchful eye on us to make sure the day was perfect. You can't go wrong with GLOW - Thank you Kristi!

Kristi and her team are great! Kristi gave me peace of mind throughout the planning process, and most importantly, on the wedding day. She is extremely detailed oriented and has a very calming presence. As a worry-wart MOB, I was able to enjoy my daughter's wedding, knowing that Kristi would take care of any problems that might arise.

Even before the first meeting, Kristi was nothing but professional. We spoke with a number of different coordinators, but chose Glow because Kristi instilled absolute confidence that she could and would handle any issues that arose. Our primary concern was that we wouldn't even have to think about the details day of and that was absolutely the case. If anything went wrong, we were complete unaware. We were able to focus on our family and friends and just have a great time!

Kristi even took care of last minute details that me or my family had simply run out of time to do. It was so reassuring to have her there to guide us through all the steps leading up to and including day of. Kristi also pitched in to alleviate stress when we found ourselves in a bind in picking up/delivering our flowers the afternoon of our wedding.

We wouldn't hesitate a second to recommend Kristi!

Wow! I am so glad that we ended up working with Kristi! We worked with her in the month leading up to our wedding, and it was perfect. The first time we met, Kristi was already writing down a to-do list of things that my fiance and I wanted to do and thought would be a special part of our wedding. Kristi created and shared timelines for all of the bridal party as well as for vendors that we were using. The day-of Kristi met us at the church, while her day-of assistant was at our venue. Kristi was even kind enough to pull in someone additional to help with transportation. Kristi was professional, but also patient with me as we drew closer to the ceremony start time. She made sure from the time the ceremony started until the end of the evening that my fiance and I were everywhere that we needed to be. She kept us on schedule, helped coordinate with our photographers to make sure we had pictures of everyone, and made sure that we didn't miss any of our special moments during the reception. I would highly recommend Kristi to anyone who just wants everyone to be able to have a good time at the wedding!
